Spend an evening stargazing at Siblyback Lake with Caradon Observatory… Two telescopes will be available on the night: one focused on Venus and then Uranus, and the other focused on the Orion Nebula and other deep sky objects.
The event will include an attempt to count the stars within the constellation of Orion, coinciding with CPRE’s Star Count, which involves people from across the country counting the number of stars they can see within the constellation on a clear night between 21 – 28 February.
Booking essential as spaces are limited.
